The Elementary School consists of five grade levels beginning in 1st grade and ending in 5th grade. During those years, our school provides an English Immersion Program in all the basic subjects- math, science, social studies, English language arts, and technology; classes conducted in Spanish focus on Spanish language arts, social studies and civics. Some specialized classes such as art, music, and physical education may be presented in English or in Spanish. This model has become known as the dual language model and has the highest yield in achievement results in both English and Spanish, this helps our students to have a better understanding of the English Language as well as the optimal development of the oral expression in both languages, the result is a fully bilingual education, which will enable our students to achieve levels unsurpassed in their education. During the five years of this school stage our students will be able to acquire the knowledge that will guide them in the development of their academic as well as personal skills. All these skills learned will enable them to have an excellent performance in different environments which they will encounter in an increasingly competitive, globalized and rapidly changing world. All these skills will be achieved through pedagogical processes that will fill them with excitement and joy at discovering new things. Due to the fact that nowadays our society is undergoing major changes and advances in the area of technology, CIS-SDE , offers computer classes at all levels in order to keep up with the forefront of modern times.
